EI8HT ~ Nik Kershaw
EI8HT ~ Nik Kershaw
2 of 3 people found the following review helpful
Nik Kershaw was my hero growing up and his was the first ever gig I witnessed, and one I will never forget. The guy is 100% pure talent there is no denying it. I gave up on his albums after The Works though as I started getting into Indie music. Now matured a bit, I thought I would buy Ei8ht to see what he is up to now. Suffice to say I was a little bit disappointed. 'These Tears', 'The Sky's the Limit' and 'Runaway' are great but songs such as 'Red Strand', 'Enjoy The Ride' and 'Shoot Me' were just not current enough for my liking. Bit 'middle of the road' if you like - not really sounding that fresh. I would have actually preferred Nik to have come out with a more synthy project,… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Ergonomically useless!, 30 Nov 2011
This product worked for me brilliantly up until the point where it ran out of battery. It is then rendered utterly useless as it is impossible to get the battery out. I actually ended up damaging the product in trying to do so. The battery is incredibly fiddly to get to and when you do it is like trying to get into Fort Knox. There are metal strips which fix the battery in a permanent manner. So if unless you want to replace your metronome every time the battery goes, steer clear!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fran is the man!, 2 Aug 2011
It's not often in this digital day and age where you have a collection of songs on a record which just 'hits the spot'. I first listened to this lying on a beach in Majorca and was blown away by its richness and beauty. Ok, it was probably the best place I could have listened to such an album, but it has not left my car, home stereo, Ipod ever since. It reminds me a lot of The Man Who, which in my opinion is Travis's best work by far. So for Fran to write and produce something which is pretty much on par with that, minus the rest of his band is quite remarkable! I can't stop listening to 'Anything' which is in my opinion one of the best songs Fran has ever written. As for the BBC… Read more
